Wednesday, March 9th, 1864

To day I took Father's and my own hands and opened a new road to his residence from the mill, the rain having rendered the old road impassable. Hicks ground 1½ bushels of corn. After dinner Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] left to join his Company which is now stationed for a short time in Crockett. Father [Joshua James Hall] went to Crockett with him. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Roberta [Berta Downes Halyard nee Hall] left for home. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] rode down with them, but did not remain long. Weather cloudy & warm with occasional showers of rain.
